JURY OF YOUR PEERS

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Trevor Noah isn’t an American.

Trevor (born 20 February 1984) is a South African television and radio host, and comedian, known for his role as host of The Daily Show on American network Comedy Central since September 2015.

He is a Black man … he knows how this feels.  

America should be ashamed but then again, there is so much to be ashamed for, that this is only a small drop in a huge bucket.

Sad!!

On Wednesday night’s episode, June 21, of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” Trevor Noah devoted the second half of his monologue to his devastation after seeing the just-released dash-cam video footage of the Minnesota police officer who fatally shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop last year.

Last week, the officer was acquitted on all charges, including manslaughter.

Philando

I won’t lie to you.

When I watched this video, it broke me.

It just – it broke me. You see so many of these videos, and you start to get numb, but this one? Seeing the child, that little girl, getting out of the car, after watching a man get killed, it broke my heart into little pieces.

Like, I thought of every joke people make about “Oh, the most confusing day in the hood is Father’s Day”:

“People don’t know where their parents are, ha-ha. Black dads.” That’s a black dad that’s gone.

That’s a child that grows up not knowing what it’s like to have somebody in their life.

It’s one thing to have the system against you – the district attorneys, the police unions, the courts – that’s one thing. But when a jury of your peers, your community, sees this evidence and decides that even this is self-defense, that is truly depressing. Because what they’re basically saying is in America, it is officially reasonable to be afraid of a person just because they are black.

And that’s the truth of what we saw with this verdict.

WORLD AIDS DAY

Anthony S. Fauci, MD, Director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases
Carl W. Dieffenbach, PhD, Director, Division of AIDS, NIAID

This year, 2016, the world marked the 35th anniversary of the first published reports of what would come to be known as HIV/AIDS.

This disease has wrought enormous suffering and devastation and caused more than 35 million deaths. Yet today, thanks to remarkable achievements in biomedical science and public health, we have the tools to build a better future for individuals living with HIV and for those at risk of infection.

We are hopeful that new approaches currently under exploration could expedite the end of the HIV/AIDS pandemic.

Thoughts for today, #268 …. “NO to More War”!!


NoWar

~~October 18, 2015~~ 

WAR NO MORE

I can’t imagine the horror of that day

Terror and devastation everywhere

I don’t know what to say

How could you not care?

Fire and ashes fell that day

Cries filled the air

Little children couldn’t find their way

Such horrible things after that white glare

War shouldn’t be the answer

It doesn’t solve a thing

It’s just as deadly as cancer

Let the bells of peace ring

We are all part of the same race

That’s the human race!

Something to think about …. “Define priorities or stop pretending”!!

~~September 9, 2015~~ 

THE EGG IS IMPORTANT … TOSS THE KID AWAY?

The Devastation Wrought By ISIS Has Forced 4,000,000 Into Camps

These families have witnessed horrors beyond belief.

Had they remained they would have been slaughtered.

Now they live in tents, with limited access to food water. Supplies are limited and tens-of-thousands are fleeing to Europe.

Even in this crisis, food is being cut off to 200,000 refugees.

In my humble opinion, this graph addresses several topics. All of them controversial.

There are religious people who stand strong in their belief that an unborn child, a zygote, a fetus, should be protected at all costs.

Others have expressed their negative opinions towards refugees in this global movement caused directly by the conflicts and wars in the Middle East.

Many governments in the European Union have turned their back on them.

It’s the people of some countries who have opened their arms to those in need.

If a zygote is good enough for incredible protection, what about the born child?

What about these kids who, by no fault of their own, have been uprooted from what they know and are now refugees?

They should be cherished, protected and fought for as the fertilized egg.

Maybe even more … because they ARE alive!
